Braxton Hicks Question

I know a million questions have been asked about BH contractions so sorry for asking another one... Just curious if there are varying degrees of BH. For example, I've had my entire stomach kinda tense up and pretty much know that's a BH. But I also get just slight stab or spasm right under my tummy. Is that one too?

  • I think that's basically a cramp or the beginning of effacement. I always thought that the BH were that tightening of the whole tummy. good luck!!
